Story Stones

Well I have been exploring the wonders of story stones recently.  Inspired by a great friend who wanted a set of Gruffalo story stones painted ...

I am so pleased with them that I had to do another set straight away!

After larging it up with the Gruffalo I thought I would try something different, so after yet another trek to the beach (my poor family) i set about painting random images onto smaller pebbles.  This was then the inspiration for after dinner frolics when we each had to choose 4 from a bag and tell as story including each one!  

Next move.... what could i possibly paint now??? I know my fav kids book 'Room on the Broom'

The broom stone is reversible! I am so pleased with them! What do you think?????


  1. OH MY GOSH! I am absolutely in love with your story stones..... The question is ... do you sell them?? i think they are just beautiful!! I'm studying to become a TA and i'm taking a group of children on Tuesday to Read 'Room On The Broom' and and activity.. i So wish i had these for it... KJ :)

  2. Thank you so much KJ. I don't sell the character ones as such as I am worried there would be a copyright issue there. I have made them as gifts really. I am working on a set of story stones however which are all my own designs so will post those ones soon. If you want to know more please feel free to email me on x

  3. These are stunning, and so brilliant for stimulating the children. May I ask what paints you use and how you seal them? Do you use some sort of varnish? Again, fabulous. Thanks.

  4. Thank you so much. I use acrylics and then spray with a clear varnish. They are great for kids, I have had very positive responses from the ones I've made already. Xx

  5. amazing... :O i tried painting a rock but it was too simple. it was a strawberry!
